As dependable as blue is, red always beats blue. It’s the go-to gold-standard flavor for lollipops and the most normal flavor for such an abnormal product. Perhaps it was that “abnormality” of buying this stuff from the back of the truck that made me appreciate the flavor so much.
I tried really hard to get high from this one -- like, really high. I squeezed my eyes shut and tried to think about “high” stuff -- you know, tie-dye patterns, kitties with lasers coming out of their butts, and Phish songs! Alas, I didn’t see tie-dye or kitties, and I still think Phish fucking sucks.
However, this is a taste test and this one wins “best taste.” Sweet, fruity, and mysterious... like a cherry-flavored strawberry. Or would it be a strawberry-flavored cherry? I don’t know which fruit is physically strongest. Against every other lollipop in the category of most pleasing to me, this pleased me most. I liked sucking on it and I’d stick one in my mouth again.
